The sculpture, Interesting Ruin, was cast by the artist directly from a local ruin. The ruin was fabricated in the 1800s by partially demolishing an existing 17th century building and planting vines that would subsequently cover it. This was a common practice around this time, carried out in order to create so called “interesting ruins”. The sculpture consists of bricks from the decaying building encased in climbing vines. Both bricks and vines were cast in rust-red Jesmonite, the iron colour reflecting the industrial legacy of East Dunbartonshire and the many rust-red rivers or creeks still running through the landscape. The colour was also chosen to act as a contrast to the green environment, as well as an echo of the fallen autumn leaves at Redmoss.
